Sugar Creek Hollow Sensational Saturday

It's a Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow!  This week our challenge is a "Splash of Color "challenge.  Create a card using black and white and one other color.  I am just so in love with this vintage"Valentine Postcard" Tracy designed!  I knew this would be perfect for this challenge.
Have I ever told you how much I love digital images?  Not only can you change the size of your image, you can also change the color of the digital ink.  I found a color in my Photoshop program that matched the design paper I used, Pink Paislee's  "Bayberry Cottage".  

I went crazy using die cuts on this card!  I was excited to use my new Heartfelt Creations Spellbinders die, "Decorative Window Scene".   I also used a Martha Stewart border die and a Magnolia Doohickey die.  I just had so much fun making this card!

We'd love to have you join our challenge this week, just create a card using the colors black, white and one other color of your choice.  You are not required to use a Sugar Creek Hollow image, but if you do you will get two entries into the random prize drawing.   The winner of the drawing will receive a digi of their choice from Sugar Creek Hollow and a badge to display on their blog.  Once we reach a minimum of 10 entries, the Design Team will select a Card of the Week and the creator of that card will receive a special badge to display on their blog.  Every month there will be a Guest Designer chosen from the Cards of the Week and that person will be invited to join the Design Team in a challenge.

All the proceeds received at Sugar Creek Hollow go to provide food, clothing and shelter for the needy.
Thanks for visiting and please remember to visit my team member's blogs, they'd love to receive a comment from you!
